Rural Aid provides critical support including water, fodder (hay), financial and counselling assistance to help farmers (primary producers) who endure drought, flood and fire. Our counselling services and community programs also help to create more sustainable and resilient rural communities as we work towards stronger futures for all Australian farmers. Rural Aid offers free, confidential wellbeing counselling to registered farmers. A Rural Aid counsellor is available in the Bega Valley to conduct meetings with farmers ‘on-farm.’ They also offer phone counselling sessions. Rural Aid counsellors can have casual chats about farmers’ overall wellbeing or provide professional advice to help farmers navigate a crisis.
